You must have a lot of free time. That was one big damn post.
If you don't have anything to add, don't try and sneak in personal attacks.


Let's continue this when we know precisely how effective these weapons will be.

Hamma is a softie, he doesn't like locking threads, Arglaar on the other hand should lock this soon after he sees it. Other than that who are the other police here? Where are the cops when you need them huh, probably out at Dunkin' Donuts or something.

Dio,

Thank you for your compliments and your reply -- it's good to see we're more or less on the same page regarding snipers. I actually like your idea (a lot) about letting bolt drivers do heavy damage, but lowering their rate of fire, too. I don't think I'd mind dying to a sniper so much if he only had one chance, but still managed to put a slug through my facemask from 400 meters. And if he missed, hey - I'd have a grand ol' time tearing him a new arsehole in the middle of his chest.

Just off the top of my head, I'd say that if a sniper had to load each slug manually (which they do), then steady and take aim, that would seem reasonable for a heavy damage tradeoff. The bolt driver and pistol only idea sounds really good, too. I'll admit, that's one of the things I worried about -- charging a sniper only to have him drop his bolt driver and whip out a rocklet as soon as I got close.

Warborn,

Thank you, too. I agree, we should probably pick up this conversation once we actually know how much damage the bolt driver does, but it's kinda fun to talk about it, anyways.

Yeah, he's too nice to lock a thread (usually).
Where's Arglaar then?

But...wha...that's what i kept saying way back there(well minus the pistol only but again that was my idea).... oh well at least we both agree now.

I think that would totally own. Make the sniping process a slow and hard one but deadly and his only shot because if he misses he only has a pistol.

Very nice. Glad we *cough*I*cough* thought about it.

Now if only Smokey can read this i agree with us.

I'd be a thread Nazi too I'm afraid. I'm not saying i'm not open minded but I have low tolerence for people who don't know how to get their point across without sounding like an @$$hole. After 2 or 3 of those I'd close the thread and it'd have to start all over again. This, among many other reasons, is why I don't have my own website





Dancing spam is the coolest thing ever.

Well i don't mind "people who don't know how to get their point across without sounding like an @$$hole." i just don't have much patience for a thread that was down 3-4 times already becoming yet another 10 page thread.

That or threads that are 80%+ flame or insults.

I'd be a nazi yes but a good nazi serving the good of the community. (well the non flaming part)

Edit: Oh and i'd be a nazi on your ass Carl! or should i say Mr. Spam to get Commander before 2k3.

I am not going to lock threads because I dont agree with them.. I like open debate/discussion. I am only going to lock threads if they are made with one purpose (flaming) or if it violates one of our rules.

You should make it against the rules to use the word "sniper".
